LÉON unveiled her latest track “Think About You” in October – listen HERE. Praised by Noisey for her “mercurial vocals,” Teen Vogue also noted, “This is only the beginning for her unforgettable voice.” The new song, available now at all DSPs, is a taste of what’s to come from her debut album on Columbia Records.
LÉON first became known for her debut single “Tired of Talking” when it released last year. It went straight to #1 on Hype Machine and received critical praise from GLAMOUR, InStyle, Noisey, PAPER, NYLON and more. The song has since captured more than 40 million streams on Spotify, and also received a remix treatment from A-Trak & Cory Enemy, which FADER called “extremely catchy” and Entertainment Weekly named one of ’10 under-the-radar songs from emerging artists who deserve your attention.’ “Tired of Talking” is featured on her debut EP Treasure, along with “Nobody Cares,” “LÉON’s Lullaby” and the EP’s title track.
A standout vocalist with a natural gift for writing fresh, infectious pop that oozes soul, 23-year-old Lotta Lindgren aka LÉON is Sweden’s latest great pop export. She is a rarity as a young, self-contained, and grounded artist who has such a potent, authentic musical identity. Her rich, smoky vocal will strike a chord in fans from the first moment hearing it, not to mention her incredibly catchy, fresh honest songs.
LÉON is currently finishing up her debut album to be released next year.
